4 ways to support your wife emotionally after a miscarriage


Experiencing a miscarriage can deeply distress couples, particularly the woman, who may feel overwhelming emotions of loss and grief.

Be there for her

The simplest, yet most powerful thing you can do is to be there for your wife. Listen to her, hold her hand, and offer your shoulder for her to cry on.

You don’t always need to offer solutions or advice. Sometimes, the act of listening and being present is enough to provide immense comfort.

Let her talk about her feelings whenever she feels the need, and ensure she knows that it’s okay not to be okay.

Create a space for remembrance

Acknowledging the loss can be therapeutic. Together, you might decide to plant a tree or create a small memorial in a meaningful spot.

This acts as a place of remembrance and honor, providing a physical space to mourn and later visit when your wife feels the need.

Such gestures show that you recognize the significance of the loss and respect the feelings attached to it, which can be incredibly affirming.

Help around the house

The physical and emotional toll of a miscarriage can leave your wife feeling exhausted and drained. Help by taking on more responsibilities around the house.

This could include daily chores, cooking meals, or taking care of other children if you have any. By lifting practical burdens, you allow her more space to heal both physically and emotionally.

Encourage professional support

Sometimes, the best way to help is to encourage seeking help from those trained to handle such grief. If your wife is struggling to cope, gently suggest talking to a therapist who specializes in dealing with loss.

Participate in the sessions if she wishes. Knowing she’s not alone in this journey can provide a lot of comfort.

Every woman copes with miscarriage differently, and what works for one might not work for another. The key is to communicate openly and ensure your wife feels supported and loved through every step of her recovery.

Your presence and empathy can make a significant difference in her healing from this heartbreak.
